A hub of cultural attractions, Ueno Park originally served as the gardens of the Kaneiji Temple during the Edo period. In 1873 it opened to the public as one of the first Western-style parks. An island temple to the goddess of fortune and beauty floats in its pond, while the national museum and art museum stand as bastions of Japan's rich heritage. Rest up between cultural sightseeing, stop by the zoo, or visit the market under the elevated train line. In the spring, join the flocks of visitors enjoying the over 800 blossoming cherry trees.

Ueno Park Reviews
為了繡球花, 一早落機放下行李便跑來。 原以為好像荷花池那樣是一大片,走牙走,原來是一大行,著實有點失落。 繡球花,很美,有不同顏色,路過的可走來看一看 more »In order to catch the ball flowers, early drop the luggage and run. Originally as if the lotus pond is a large area, walking teeth, the original is a big line, the author has a little lost. Ball flowers, very beautiful, there are different colors, the road can walk to see
あんまり天気は良くなくて、時々雨になったりでしたが、上野公園の動物園に近い場所を陣取った、台湾フェスティバル行ってみました。 台湾でコーヒータピオカドリンクなんてあったっけ！？ ～そんなもの珍しさでトライしたキャフェモカタピオカや、角煮豚と揚げ麺だとかの入った台湾バンズを試しに買って食べてみましたが、それなりにどっちも美味しかった。 とりあえずなんでも5００円～１０００円／ルーロ飯はどの屋台も... more »The weather was not so good, and it sometimes rained, but i went to the Taiwan Festival, which was close to the zoo in Ueno Park. Was there a coffee tapioca drink in Taiwan? I bought and ate taiwan buns with caffemokatapioca and kafemokatapioca and fried pork and fried noodles, but both were delicious as such. For the time being, anything is 500 yen to 1,000 yen, and all stalls are 700 yen to 800 yen. Rice and noodles... - None of them have volume, so i'm just... It's expensive, isn't it?! So... I don't know. It was also.
A great park, full of attractions. If you come in spring you can admire one of the most famous place to watch the cherry blossoms bloom. In other periods it is great to take a walk, visit one of the museums here or go shopping in the shopping district across the street. My favorite place are two temples, one in the pond and other overlooking it from the hill with the amazing tree growing in circle in front of it
A very beautiful park, surrounded by great museums, cafes and shrines. Great place to kill an afternoon, especially during cherry blossom season. There are often street performers of high caliber, and regular festivals. Highly recommend hopping accross the street and spending a few hours at the National Museum which is only 620 yen as of Feb 2019.
